Objective: Many treatment protocols are used in Helicobacter pylori eradication treatment within the framework of factors such as antibiotic resistance, drug side effects, patient compliance, and regional differences.

Materials and Methods: H. pylori was diagnosed with upper gastrointestinal system endoscopic biopsy in the Internal Diseases Gastroenterology Endoscopy Unit of Atatürk University Medical Faculty Hospital; a total of 229 patients over the age of 18 were evaluated prospectively by dividing them into 3 groups and applying 3 different H. pylori eradication treatment protocols.

Results: A total of 229 patients who completed the treatment were included in the study. H. pylori eradication was achieved in 186 patients and not achieved in 43 patients. The H. pylori eradication success of our study was found to be 81.2%. Among the 84 patients in group 1, while H. pylori eradication was achieved in 67 of them, it was not achieved in 17 patients. The eradication success of quadruple treatment with bismuth was 79.8%. Also, among the 68 patients in group 2, while H. pylori eradication was achieved in 55 patients, it was not achieved in 13. The eradication success of the 14-day hybrid treatment was 80.9%. Among the 77 patients in group 3, while H. pylori eradication was achieved in 64 patients, it was not achieved in 13. The eradication success of the 10-day sequential treatment was 83.1%.

Conclusion: It is necessary to conduct studies to find the most successful eradication regimen in primary care treatment of H. pylori in our country, to determine the regional antibiotic resistance rates, to individualize the proton pump inhibitor treatment due to metabolism and resistance differences, to examine the factors that stop from achieving the desired eradication success, and especially to avoid unnecessary antibiotic use.
